The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Quite honestly, I didn't really fancy The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe especially after Peter Jackson and team's success with Lord of the Rings. Well, the movie wasn't entirely bad though, because afterall, it inspired, The Chronicles of Maria!

This was a play I had written last year, spoofing the Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. It was about a domestic worker who had come to Singapore to study and to find work and ended up falling through a window. The window served as a portal for her to enter the land of Airam, where she discovered that she was the Chosen One who was supposed to overthrow the evil and ruthless Queen.

Prince Caspian, on the other hand, looks much better than the first movie. Although the scene at the train station has shades of Harry Potter (the comparisons are inevitable aren't they?), it brought about a sense of doom seeing the train pass the Pevensie children. The highlights of movies like these are usually the battle scenes and I must admit I'm one of those who have come to enjoy battle scenes that are simply put, good. Watching the trailer, it appears promising enough.

I'd watch Prince Caspian because I like a good fantasy story. Furthermore, there's a jolly good reason why C.S. Lewis' stories are timeless classics isn't there? Plus, you'd never what kind of inspirations I might get out of this movie after what happened with the first! Haha!

Oh oh, if you guys have yet to see the Prince Caspian trailer, you can view it at:
